the rah, tora, tora. i watched susan rice when she appeared on "meet the press" in september of 2012. i watched her yesterday when she did it again. and unlike the hawks pushing for trouble abroad or division at home, i also read the bipartisan report of the senate intelligence committee saying that what rice said in 2012 about benghazi carried the hard, difficult core of truth, that the raid which killed our ambassador resulted from the attack that day in cairo which resulted from the crazy anti-islamist video produced by some crazed right-winger out in california. so why did john mccain and darrell issa and the rest keep yelling benghazi? why didn't they say how much they respect hillary clinton especially her work as secretary of state and continue to accuse her as cover-up? does issa truly believe that hillary clinton ordered american troops to stand down? why would she do that to a friend? steven was her friend? why would she deliberately let him die? what are you saying, mr. issa? what are you getting at, mr. mccain? do you or do you not accept it was the intelligence community th

of one just yet. we have heard the u.s. national security adviser susan rice on television today saying, look, it would be a grave mistake for russia to get involved in this. clearly the west putting out the message saying, look, moscow, back off. they made their decision, perhaps using the back end of the sochi games in russia. a big showcase for vladimir putin's new russia and trying to put that kind of pressure on the kremlin. but a lot of uncertainties ahead here. one half of the country wants to head west and the other is economically tied to the east. don? >> so, nick, you're saying russia, russia, russia. how does this affect u.s., the u.s. relationship with russia? >> the u.s. relationship with russia after the decision by barack obama not to attend sochi games and send a lot of openly gay athletes as part of the u.s. delegation criticism on the u.s. posture, sorry the russian posture on gay rights. the u.s. doesn't really have much of a say here, unless throw in money to bolster the economy. like to see, of course, the ukraine head west and a lot of noise by george bush back in
reconcile what susan rice told the nation on 16 september, the spokesman for the administration, when she said there was no terrorist attack, no al qaeda involvement. this was protest caused by video and she told the nation there was no terrorist attack no al qaeda involvement, when in fact there was, and the president himself started talking pat about a protest caused by video, because if the truth had been known seven weeks before the inspection that is was an al qaeda terrorist attack, his reelection was at risk. they manipulated the facts to gets re-elected, and the reason benghazi doesn't go away, it's not a fox news story. it's not a republican story. it's an american story. and people want to know more because four dead americans. >> a lot of people go back and forth, senator, whan the president knew and when he knew and it what he said, how he men it, whether it's semantics or deceitful. we know the day after the incidents he was in las vegas for a political fundraiser. now, politicians go to fundraisers all the time, but if memory serves me right it was mitt romney who was critic

before susan rice's controversial sunday show appearances, morrell and others at the cia received a critical e-mail that reported the attacks were not not an escalation of protests. it was from the cia chief of station on the ground in libya. >> the chief of station is the senior intelligence officer for the entire united states government. you would really have to have some incredibly overwhelming facschl evidence to disregard that. >> five former intelligence officials contacted by fox news agreed with the assessment of the chief of stations e-mail and declined to speak on camera. >> the way the agency works, he's been running 24 hours a day to nail each fact, and he's running out indirectly into most senior levels of the organization, saying again with a big red crayon as clearly as he can, there were no protests. >> while the report does not explain when he read the e-mail, it says on the same day, september 15th, he edited the talking points twice, excising about half the text. the word islamic was cut, but demonstration stayed in. the next day, september 16th, the same day s

the following: the story told by susan rice and the president himself shortly after the attack on 16 september and for a couple of weeks later is absolutely collapsed. it is not credible. it is a fabrication. it was a manipulation of the intel seven weeks before an election. and i think it is abundantly clear that the information coming from libya never suggested there was a protest, identified this as a terrorist attack from the very beginning. and on 16 september, five days after the attack, the u.n. ambassador, susan rice, assured the nation that the consulate was subsubstantially, significantly and strongly secured. there's absolutely in the talking points about that. clearly that was not the case. why did she say that? her story about a protest caused by a video being the most likely cause of the attack is not based on any facts or any reporting from libya. and we will walk through the time line. but the head of the c.i.a. in libya on 15 september sent a message, an e-mail by cable to the number-two, mike morell in the c.i.a. in washington, saying this was not, not a protest that escalate

one day after susan rice's appearance that there were no demonstrations outside that embassy. this senate report also reveals what was known by susan rice. the agency received a critical e-mail reporting that the tacks were "not/not an escalation of protests." it was from the most senior intelligence officer who was on the ground. >> the way the agency works, he's been running 24 hours a day to nail every fact. and now he's reaching out four days into this e-mail directly to the most senior levels of his organization saying again with a big red crayon as clearly as he can there were no protests. >> well, the senate report does not explain when morel read the e-mail. the word "islamic" was cut but "demonstration" stayed in. two days later the cia and fbi reviewed closed circuit tv video from the consulate that showed no protests. two months later in november 2012 at the height of the talking points controversy, susan met with senators mccain, ayotte and graham. morrell talked with rice. >> what i found curious is he did not take responsibility for changing the talking points.
there were no protests. at the height of the controversy susan rice met with senators mccain, ayotte, and graham. >> what i found curious was he did not accept responsibility for changing the talking points. he told me the fbi had done this. i called the fbi, they went ballistic. within 24 hours his statement was changed where he admitted the cia had done it. >> reporter: morrell recently described by the "new york times" magazine as clinton's principle gate cooper. he gave up -- gatekeeper. the "journal" says he is close to hillary clinton citing unnamed officials. he declined fox's offer to speak on camera. in a written statement late yesterday he insisted the senate report strongly you ports the cia's position that the talking points were not politicized in any way. but that was not the view of republicans on that committee. martha: very interesting. we'll speak to senator kelly ayotte about this. bill: a real-life castaway says he spent a year at sea. but some are questioning his story. martha: the president taking aim the fox news on the same day hillary clinton did the same thi

16th. same day susan rice was on tv morell asked the staff in libya for more information. and they reviewed closed circuit television that showed there were no protest. and two months and the height of the talking points controversy and susan rice went on the sunday talking show, morell went to capitol hill and met with senators. >> in that meeting, when susan rice was with director morell and wlamed the fbi for changing the talking points and we called the fbi and they go crazy and said we didn't change the talking points. you have to wonder particularly now that he may have received the e-mail the day before what was going on. >> reporter: recently it was described by the new york times magazine as clinton's principle gatekeeper. he gave an interview and advising future presidential campaign he is close to mrs. clinton. they declined to speak on camera about the report. and insisted that the september supported the cia position that the talking points were not politicized in any way. >> catherine, thank you from washington. >>> he's the president's pick to be the next
-- or did she refuse to go on the sunday talk show? why was susan rice on there? >> hilary clinton goes on the shows when she needs to for a political reason. when she is trailing on the campaign trail, she will do it. but generally she wants to stay away. there was other stuff to do in this case and i think she recognized the potential political danger and maybe felt it was inappropriate to be out on the television show which there was show much to do in terms of figuring out what happened. once she wasn't available and bookers for this tv shows went to the state beapartment and the hoot house once it was clear it moved to susan rice and she used the talking points that were negotiated and went out beyond what the talking points said. and members of congress decided, susan rice, not all members, but some including republicans, decided she had lied to the public. and hilary clinton was doing briefings where she talked about arm militants went into the campaign. most of the people thought she said terrorist. the difference between armed and terrorist was a small thing. >> what is somethi
. here's his son's response. >> i am almost speechless because it is obvious first of all susan rice had no reason to be on the program she had no involvement on it. we are now beginning to believe came from the white house are which are absolutely false. the cia chief on the ground sent a message immediately saying not/not spontaneous demonstration. it was totally misleading and false for susan rice to say such a thing it is a little embarrassing to tell you the truth. >> amid the fallout she withdrew her name for consideration from secretary of state. >> following in his father's neighboring shahandling foot st. >> that is the son of the preacher from the national geographic show seen dancing at a service with the same snake that killed his dad last week. he died after being bitten at his church in kentucky. he says if he is ever attacked he will refuse treatment, too. >> dancing with the scars not skipping a beat. aaron around drews will join the 18th season. the 35-year-old fox sports reporter familiar she was also a contestant you might remember season 10 placing third. >> just anno
. >> yeah. >> that's an act of terror. >> more than that, because as susan rice goes out and tells the world that it was a spontaneous demonstration off a videotape, but your commanders and the secretary of defense know it's a terror attack. >> bill, bill -- >> just as an american, i'm confused. >> bill, i've gone through this. and we have had multiple hearing on it. what happens is you have an attack like this taking place, and you have a mix of folks who are just troublemakers, you have folks who have an ideological agenda. >> all right. you have some who are affiliated with terrorist organizations. you some who are not. but the main thing that all of us have to take away from this is our diplomats are serving in some very dangerous places. >> your detractors believe you did not tell the world it was terror attack because your campaign didn't want that out. >> bill, think about -- >> that's what they believe. >> and they believe it because folks like you are telling them that. >> no, i'm not. >> beyond what the president said there which is true, the bipartisan senate intelligence committe
that the russians will help. today, the president's national security adviser susan rice talked next steps. >> we want tosy a deescalation of violence. we want to see constitutional change. we want to see democratic elections in very short order. and the opportunity for the people of ukraine to come together in a coalition -- >> the united states -- >> and rice clearly said the united states is on the side of the ukrainian people. harris. >> what was interesting on fox report last night, we had a grn reporter talk with us from kiev. he says, you know, once the olympics are over, we could see some changes. we could see the russians reengaging somehow. lawmakers here are concerned with the russians meddling or worse. >> no question about that. and there may be a tug of war with the united states and europeans on one side and the russians on the other with americans hoping ukraine will move forward with western values. senator bob corker, the top republican on the foreign relations committee, says the united states should insure ukraine remains one country and their territorial and political in inte
was not going to stick around, hillary clinton was leaving, the successor for hillary clinton, susan rice, the one obama wanted, was getting destroyed on capitol hill over benghazi and the talking points on the talk shows. her charm to win over some of the senators, she ended up making more enemies than friends. where het a situation will have to have a new defense secretary, a new secretary of state. he has got somebody leaving who has become a pretty loyal and strong advisor to him. he thought we can keep hillary clinton for a while and find the next secretary of state, resurrects susan rice a little bit. interesting moment, she just says i am done. the impacthe think could be on john kerry's tenure, what he might accomplish. if shee overshadow -- decides to run in 2016 -- could he overshadow what she did? sure, he has a few years left, he is reaching for the stars, and efforts to clean up ria's chemical weapons, get iran to give up nuclear weapons, peace in the middle east. on iran, the state department under hillary clinton really started those negotiations. victory, john kerry will g
for our third topic? okay, so we have susan rice also on the sunday shows. she had a famous run on the sunday shows before. five sunday shows in which the ben gaughazi talking points wer revealed. she explained that on meet the press yesterday. >> david, no, because what i said to you that morning and what i did every day since was to share the best information that we had at the time. the information i provided, which i explained to you, was what we had at the moment. >> i'm almost speechless because it's patently obviously, first of all, that susan rice had no reason to be on the program. she had no involvement in it. second of all, she read talking points that we're now beginning to believe came from the white house, which were absolutely false. >> eric, were you surprised she would have said that? why not just say the talking points were not accurate, and move on? do you think it's too dangerous. >> here's what happened. remember hillary clinton was supposed to show up. she said she couldn't or didn't want to for whatever reason. >> obviously the reason. >> right, so susan r
susan rice spoke for the obama administration yesterday. >> the ukrainian people expressed themselves peacefully. they were met with violence. and that did not end well for yanukovych. >> does he have to go in the president's mind? >> he has gone. >> but does he have to relinquish power? >> he has gone, david. i mean, this is an interesting and complicated situation, as you know. he's lost -- yanukovych has lost enormous legitimacy despite having been originally democratically elected, by turning on his people, by using violence in the streets against peaceful protesters. and by flouting the will of the ukrainian -- >> but he's saying he's not stepping down. >> but he left kiev, packed up in an orderly fashion, took his stuff, his furniture with him. this was not fleeing -- >> the united states says it does not know yanukovych's current location. the ukrainian parliament has named its new speaker as the interim head of state. russia has recalled its ambassador to ukraine. today russian prime minister dimitri medvedev told reporters the legitimacy of a whole number of organs of power t
incident but the situation in ukraine is unstable at best. susan rice was asked if russian president putin still sees the world from a cold war point of view. >> he may. if he does that is a pretty dated perspective that doesn't reflect where the people of ukraine are coming from. we have called him on it and the president is forceful in his dealings with putin but it's not necessary, nor is it our interests to return to a cold war construct which is long out of date and doesn't reflect the realities of the 21st century. >> susan rice talking to david growing on "meet the press." yesterday, john mccain weighed in. >> what does putin do here? i think the message has to be sent to him, let the ukrainian people determine their own future and a partition of ukraine is totally unacceptable. if i were vladimir putin today at the end of the olympics, i'd be a little nervous because the people of russia have watched this transpire and they are tired of the crony capitalism that governs russia today. if i were him, i'd be a little bit nervous. >> ask you how the obama administration has played this
susan rice what talking points to be used that morning. all of this has to be viewed in the context of a presidential campaign. remember, bin laden is dead, al qaeda is on the run, everything is fine in the world. that was the whole theme as far as national security is concern of the obama campaign. well, if this attack, the on our consulate was carried out in a planned terrorist attack, then that blows a hole a mile wide in the theme of the campaign. so, therefore, a series of things happened which are unacceptable. including the fact that they knew right away that it was a terrorist attack. that there was no spontaneous demonstration. they had video that showed that. they knew there were people that had been evacuated to germany that would have told them that. and the station chief in tripoli said there was not, slash not. >> you are not going to get an answer to your letter. is he not going to answer your letter. >> no. he will not answer my letter, but we will keep the pressure on until we know for the benefit of those four families exactly what happened. they deserve to know. a
that on september 16, ambassador susan rice appeared on behalf of the administration on every major sunday television show, and during that time people rightly wanted to know what happened. this was a big deal. an ambassador had been murdered, three other americans in libya, where we had gone in to remove, working with our nato partners, to get rid of qadhafi and really had established alliances with libya. and here we have a murdered ambassador on september 11. and that day ambassador rice during the context of a precedential election, went on every single sunday show. and when she was asked about what happened that day, she blamed this on the spontaneous reaction to a hateful video. well, recently the senate select committee on intelligence did some very good bipartisan work, looking at what happened on the attack of the consulate, and in that report is something very, very telling. in that report, the report found that "contrary to many press reports at the time, eyewitness statements by u.s. personnel indicate that there were no protests at the start of the attacks. " in fact, the then
-- because the bipartisan intelligence committee, both parties said everything susan rice said was accurate. it was caused by that crazy move in california which caused the craziness in cairo which was copyrighted in benghazi. that's what we knew then and now. nothing has changed. the president was telling the truth and so was susan rice. why do they keep saying this stuff? >> benghazi means i hate president obama, i hate hillary clinton, and i hate susan rice. >> just like you. >> that's what it says. >> just like you. so i'm okay on that one? >> yeah. >> that's what it means. why lindsey graham, who has a brain? >> we can set jim inhofe aside. >> i really like the guy. i'm watching him, i'm thinking p.o.w. he has to read the statement. >> so inhofe says whenever it snows that's proof that there is no global warming. >> i don't really like him that much. >> lindsey graham has -- he is likely to have a difficult primary challenge. >> seven people running against him. >> and he just gets something stuck in his craw here. the odd thing, though, this isn't even about benghazi. we're not talkin

the weekend, when susan rice sort of told that by saying a breakup of ukraine is in nobody's best interest, which is in diplomatic speak, a kind of warning. basically saying, back off. >> speaking of national security adviser susan rice, let me play what she said on "meet the press," regarding whether putin sees this from a cold war perspective. here's what she said. >> that's a pretty dated perspective that doesn't reflect where the people of ukraine are coming from. this is not about the u.s. and russia. this is about whether the people of ukraine have the opportunity to fulfill their aspirations and be democratic and be part of europe, which they choose to be, but it's not necessary, nor in our interest, to return to a cold war construct, which is long out of date and doesn't reflect the realities of the 21st century. >> the realities of the 21st century are cloudy as it relates to ukraine and the e.u. and russia's involvement here for those in the states and perhaps don't see why this is of significance to us in this country, how do you explain that? >> well, it's unfortunate that susa
mislead the world, former u.n. ambassador susan rice, said this about the benghazi attack. >> i commented that this was based on what we knew on that morning was provided to me and colleagues and indeed to congress by the intelligence community. that's been well-validated in many different ways since. and that information turned out, in some respects, not to be 100% correct. >> an understatement to be sure. upon hearing ambassador rice senator john mccain replied. >> she read talking points that we are now beginning to believe came from the white house which were absolutely false. we now know that the director -- that the cia station chief on the ground september a message not slash not spontaneous demonstration. >> mr. obama supporters would you have believe the whole thing is cooked up by right-wing people that despise the president. that, of course is propaganda. as an american, not a broadcaster, as an american, i want to know what happened. so i asked the with the directly. >> did he tell you secretary panetta was it a terrorist attack. >> you know what he told me there was an attack
was that the security was lax. >> but that contradicts what the u.n. ambassador susan rice said just days after the attack. >> well, we obviously did have a strong security presence. >> so which was it? security was strong or lax? the senator is also taking issue with this claim. >> the notion that we would hide the ball for political purposes when a week later we all said in fact, there was a terrorist attack taking place, that wouldn't be a very good cover-up. >> the lawmakers point out, however, that the president was not calling this a terrorist attack a week later. in fact, on "the view" two weeks later he specifically declined to go that far. >> i heard hillary clinton say that it was an act of terrorism. is it? >> we're still doing an investigation. we don't have all the information yet. >> finally, the senators demand accountability. >> make no mistake, justice will be done. >> and yet the senators are right, in almost 17 months none of the terrorists have been brought to justice. joining me now, democratic ranking member on the house intel committee. adam schiff, sir, let's start with
